IBM WebSphere Application Server 7.0 < Fix Pack 17 Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote application server may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

IBM WebSphere Application Server 7.0 before Fix Pack 17 appears to be
running on the remote host. As such, it is potentially affected by
the following vulnerabilities :

- Use of an insecure XML encryption algorithm could allow
for decryption of JAX-RPC or JAX-WS Web Services
requests. (PM34841)

- A remote attacker can gain unspecified application access
on z/OS, when a Local OS user registry or Federated
Repository with RACF adapter is used. (PM35480)

Note that the fix for PM34841 is not enabled by default in order to
maintain application compatibility with respect to SOAPFaults. To
enable it, it is necessary to set the 'webservices.unify.faults=true'
JVM custom property once the update has been installed.

Solution :

If using WebSphere Application Server, apply Fix Pack 17 (7.0.0.17) or
later.

Otherwise, if using embedded WebSphere Application Server packaged with
Tivoli Directory Server, apply the latest recommended eWAS fix pack.
